If you are preparing for the MCCEE, the MCCQE Part 1 or the MCCQE Part 2 we recommend a 3-6 month subscription to the corresponding QBank at CanadaQBank.com. We have found, through feedback from medical students and physicians, that this works best. The key is to do the questions repeatedly, at least twice, but preferably more. Also read the explanations very carefully. This will help you master the topics. Take a look at your exam analysis to see which subject areas you are weakest in, and concentrate on improving them during your revision period.

To begin your preparation for these exams, visit our Question Banks here: www.CanadaQBank.com
